The game takes place after the events of the first 2 movies and might be taking place just before the animated series as far as time line goes. The Ghostbusters are the heroes of New York City and right now can do no wrong. With all that has happened they are still cleaning up after the mess that the bureaucrats caused in the last film with Vigo and the river of slime. Since business is brisk they are going to train you as their new member of the Ghostbusters team. Right off the bat it is on the job training for you but with it being a Ghostbusters game what else would you expect to happen. Read more...(708 words, 39 images, estimated 2:50 mins reading time)
Zombie Bowl-O-Rama was pure fun and silliness, and threw me into fits of giggles often as I bowled down the invading zombies at the local lanes. They came to life from some kind of alien goo, and now you have to play against them in the local bowling lanes to get rid of them. These zombies are cartoony, and funny, dressed in everything from business suits and cellphone accessories to mohawks, jeans, and pocket protectors. As you let go of that ball, it can be anything, from a beehive, to a brain, to a head of cabbage, depending on what tricks or treats you use or the opponent pulls. You play in a 10-frame game, but this might as well be pretty much a first-person shooter. There are even some things you will shoot the zombies with, like rockets and a plunger gun. The tricks can make the zombies grow, make your ball grow, move them all into one place under a disco ball, all to make them easier to hit, and that is just a few of the treats. The tricks can be anything from road ramps and oilslicks to a werewolf that blows your ball into a gutter to a “Thriller” dance where they line up to evade you.. Add in a rockin’ sound track, and you have got one helluva a good time in a variation of a first person shooter that will just keep you laughing with every frame you bowl. Go check out Zombie Bowl-O-Rama right now!
The Juicer had the potential to be a really fun and funny first person shooter game. It seems the poor farmer decided to up his game in producing some crops, but the new chemical additive made the fruits and veggies come to life, and they went all Sorcerer’s Apprentice on him. Now the evil plants are coming at him with a vengeance and it’s up to him to shoot the crazy corn and the pummeling pears until there can be enough juice extracted from them to create an antidote. These wild plants have an edge, though. They being in reinforcements by truck and planeloads. Depending on which upgrades you buy or earn, it’s really funny to see the animations when things change. Therein lies the problem with this game. Every time you shoot one of the helper discs in the shooter, the graphics wash out the screen, and it’s very hard to see. Clearly, this game was released too soon. There is nothing wrong with my video card, as just before I tried The Juicer, I was playing Guild Wars without any problems, except those we normally see on AB bonus weekends.
